In the UK an increasing number of traffic offences are being automated
using surveillance cameras connected to central computers that use
number plate recognition to put a penalty notice letter in the post.
Speeding, parking, bus lane violations, red light jumping, unpaid tolls, etc.
If a town wants to raise a bit more cash, just install a few more
cameras. These cameras usually catch more strangers rather than
locals, so driving outside your local area can get expensive very
